Price Charts and Technical Analysis

The EUR/NZD seems to be in a strong downtrend. The bearish price swing is expected to be a wave 3 (pink):

  1. The pullback seems to be an ABC (pink) correction in wave 4 (grey).
  2. The second breakout below the 21 ema zone could indicate the end of the wave 4 (grey) pullback.
  3. A break (orange arrow) below the support trend line (green) would be the next confirmation.
  4. A deeper pullback to the 50% Fibonacci level is expected to act as resistance and a potential reversal.
  5. A break above the 50% Fib places this wave outlook on hold (orange circle) or invalidates it (red circle).
  6. The main bearish targets are located at the round levels of 1.6250, 1.60, and the -27.2% Fib target at 1.5860.

On the 1 hour chart, price action seems to be preparing for a bearish breakout but the wave 4 (grey) could extend into a triangle pattern:

  1. Price action could have completed a bullish ABC (orange) in wave 4 (grey).
  2. But the wave 4 could also extend sideways via a larger ABC.
  3. A bullish break above the 50% places the bearish outlook on hold (orange circle) or invalidates it (red circle).
  4. A bearish breakout (orange arrow) could indicate a downtrend continuation. But a break of the bottom is needed as well later on.

Good trading,
